Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The high-speed modulation characteristics and performance in optical fiber transmission links of oxide confined vertical cavity surface emitting lasers are reported. The lasers have bandwidths of 13 GHz. Error-free transmission is obtained for both subcarriers modulated multichannel transmission and directly modulated digital transmission at 8 Gb/s.
